Curriculum Directors

The Administrative Rules Legislative Committee met today and discussed
the "Diploma Language" found in the latest draft of R-277-705. =20

=20

Legislators indicated that they approve of the language on the diploma
for students passing the UBSCT  (see A-1 below).  However, expect the
language for the diploma for students not passing the UBSCT to
specifically indicate students did not pass the UBSCT. =20

So the language below in A-1 is fine, but A-2 will likely change in the
Board meeting on January 12, 2006 read more like:

(2) "High School Diploma indicating the student did not pass the UBSCT"
.

The highlighted portion below shall change. =20

=20

R277-705-8.  Designation of Differentiated Diplomas and Certificates of
Completion.

            A.  As provided under Section 53A-1-611(2) (d), districts or
schools shall designate in express language at least the following types
of diplomas or certificates:

            (1) High School Diploma indicating a passing score on all
UBSCT subtests.

            (2) High School Diploma that does not indicate a passing
score on all UBSCT subtests.

            (3) Certificate of Completion.

            B.  The designation shall be made on the face of the diploma
or certificate of completion provided to students.

=20

Stay tuned, we cannot promise anything at this point, but Carol Lear in
on the case!

Thank you
